SL Jet dealer receives prestigious award

Thursday, June 5, 2008

Chindlund Trucks, Inc. has been a Jet Dealer since 1976. They are located at 517 Swallum in Storm Lake. Jet Company of Humboldt, Iowa presented a plaque to Bill. This plaque was awarded to Chindlund Trucks, Inc. for achieving the 300-unit level in trailer sales in the month of April 2007.Jet Company is a leading manufacturer of grain trailers, flatbeds, dropdecks and construction trailers.

Grain trailers are available in steel and aluminum and are offered in lengths from 22' to 42'. Jet Trailers offer customers more strength, payload and slope than is standard in the industry.Jet Company has a patented hopper trailer design, which greatly benefits grain haulers. This design is a rounded hopper and rounded inside slopes, which has eliminated inside square corners, restricting or causing grain and other commodities to hang up. This design acts more like a funnel and readily dumps even high moisture grain or bean meal. Other advantages are a higher ground clearance, lighter empty weight and more legal bushel capacity.Jet Company's patented RB (ramp & bevel) door design makes the doors on a Jet Trailer the easiest opening on the market. The door uses the weight of the load to push open the door.

Jet Company's patented suspended slope design gives Jet Trailers the flexibility to handle the twisting stresses of the farm environment. Jet aluminum hoppers with a single corrugated wall, make them one of the strongest and lightest in the industry. The 42' aluminum hopper on spring suspension weights 8600 pounds with steel wheels, giving owners one of the largest payloads available.Jet Trailers have features that reflect a concern for safety.

For example, view windows reduce the need to climb the ladder to check on the load. In addition, slopped ends make standing on ladders easier and safer. Jet's patented electric tarp means no more fighting the wind to open or close the tarp.In addition to flatbeds, dropdecks, tags, sidedumps, detachable necks and grain trailers,

Jet Company also manufactures wire rollers, and standard and heavy duty post drivers.
